11 Senators urge that the Governor “immediately reclassify the restaurant industry as critical infrastructure before even more damage is done to our communities”

El Cajon – Senator Brian Jones (R-Santee) and ten other Senators sent a strongly worded letter to Governor Gavin Newsom on behalf of out of work restaurant employees and owners suffering during the state-ordered shutdown of indoor and outdoor dining throughout much of California.
Specifically, the bi-partisan letter asks the Governor to: “immediately reclassify the restaurant industry as critical infrastructure before even more damage is done to our communities . . . closed restaurants means jobs lost, missed rent, mortgage and car payments and a lot of unemployment checks.”

In the letter, Jones and the other ten Senators also point out the work restaurant employees and owners have already done to prevent COVID transmission: “The industry has proposed guidelines that would allow restaurants to continue to operate safely and at capacity levels that will allow restaurants to stay afloat, while at the same time implementing safety protocols . . .”

“Waitresses, waiters, chefs, cooks, other restaurant employees and owners have been whipsawed by these shutdowns for nine months now,” stated Senator Jones. “As someone who worked in the restaurant industry for a number of years, I know that safety is the utmost concern for them. For the state to arbitrarily close them down and make restaurants and their employees a scapegoat is simply unfair and unjustifiable.”

Senator Brian W. Jones is Chair of the Senate Republican Caucus and was elected to the California State Senate in 2018 representing the 38th Senate District which includes Alpine, Escondido, Lemon Grove, El Cajon, La Mesa, Santee, Poway, San Marcos, Lakeside, Valley Center, Rancho Santa Fe, Julian, Ramona, Rancho San Diego, Bonsall, Fallbrook, Borrego Springs, and parts of the City of San Diego.
